Our fabulous school band was asked to perform at the Greenwich Town Hall in Woolwich as a part of Greenwich Council’s Fair Trade event. We performed three pieces to a large audience made up of other school children, teachers, council dignitaries and the Mayor of Greenwich, Councillor Norman Adams. The band were able to sample the different fair trade goods that were being promoted, including a range of different exotic fruit and chocolate! There was also a smoothie bike, where you had to pedal the bike really fast to blend the fruit for your smoothie! The event was promoting fair trade goods, where the farmers that grow and harvest the products recieve a decent living wage for their hard work. At Sherington we agree that this is a good thing, so we encourage you to ‘Sit down for breakfast, [and] stand up for farmers’ by buying fair trade goods where you can.

Here are some photographs from the day taken by photographer Brian Aldrich:

We recently performed at the Blackheath Concert Halls as a part of the Royal Greenwich Music Hub Instrumental Gala. There were two nights of music performed by students from across the borough, ranging from solo violin players to full fusion orchestra. Our band performed two songs: ‘Shosholoza’, a traditional South African song, and ‘Papa’s got a brand new Pig Bag’ by Pigbag. They performed excellently well and made the whole school proud!

Here are some photographs from the daytime rehearsal and evening performance.
